R1: Keslar nearly catches War Machine's opening kick. War Machine wades forward with hooks and Keslar counters with a nice outside trip. He latches onto War Machine's back in the seated position and then locks the body triangle on with his back on the fence. War Machine starts to cage walk but Keslar's body triangle prevents it. War Machine actually plugs Keslar hard in the face with a no-look back punch. And gets another a moment later.
Keslar grinds away with a series of short left hands that worsen a small cut on War Machine's forehead. War Machine stands with Keslar on his back and Keslar digs his forearm under the chin and wrenches the choke, putting War Machine out.
Ron Keslar defeats War Machine by submission (rear-naked choke), Round 1
